The Mahler Piano Series features a wide variety of musical styles that influenced Mahler, as well as the bulk of his symphonic music arranged for solo piano.

Acclaimed pianist, composer and arranger Iain Farrington explores the European musical melting pot of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Featuring exceptional singers performing in an intimate salon venue from the period, this is a unique and remarkable exploration of Mahler’s musical world.

Female Pioneers
Mahler's Eighth Symphony concludes with a celebration of 'The Eternal Feminine' and was dedicated to his wife Alma. This concert features songs and piano music exclusively by female composers who were Mahler's near-contemporaries. The range of nationalities include British, French and American music, as well as Austro-German composers, all of whom were pioneers in their musical world. A wide range of music is performed, works of great variety, colour and beauty.

Iain Farrington (piano)
Iain has an exceptionally busy and diverse career as a pianist, composer and arranger. He studied at the Royal Academy of Music, London and at Cambridge University. Iain has performed as a soloist, accompanist and chamber musician at all the major UK venues, as well as in the USA, Japan, South Africa, Malaysia, Hong Kong and all across Europe. He performed at the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics with Rowan Atkinson, the London Symphony Orchestra and Sir Simon Rattle. Iain has worked with many of the country's leading musicians, including Willard White, Lesley Garrett, Paul McCartney and gives frequent broadcasts on BBC Radio Three. He has composed orchestral, choral and instrumental pieces, including several orchestral works for the BBC Proms. Iain has arranged hundreds of works in many styles, including opera, instrumental and choral, African songs, cabaret, klezmer, jazz and pop. His chamber orchestrations of the symphonic repertoire (including much Mahler) are regularly performed around the world, and he has arranged and performed all of Elgar's symphonies on the piano.

Rozanna Madylus (mezzo-soprano)
Born in Leicestershire, of Ukrainian descent, Rozanna studied English Literature and Philosophy at the University of East Anglia, and vocal studies at the Royal Academy of Music.
